  1. It depends. If the offence that my son is presently accused of is not a serious or criminal one, and he has no prior record or other offence of same category already filed in the Court, or he is not already out of bail at the time of his current arrest, then I will surely bail him out of jail.

    It is the responsibility of the arresting officer to evaluate my son’s credibility based on the above facts. If my son’s credibility is on the negative side, and/or compounded by the fact that the arresting officer has reasons to believe that my son will not show up on the court hearing date, then the officer will take my son to the bail court and let the Judge decide on the cost of bail.

    Bailing out my son gives us ample time to interrogate, investigate, gather evidences and witnesses, etc., and most importantly who are the people involved and what is my son’s role. In other words, we go through the entire sequence of events that led to his arrest.

    It is a lengthy, cumbersome and expensive process, but it is my son’s life that is on stake.
